Applications for the 2013 Roanoke Class are being accepted now and must be completed no later than February 15, 2013. The 2012 Class is already filled.
Applications for the 2013 Joint Venture with the DCC campus are being accepted now and must be completed no later than February 15, 2013. Classes are accepted biennially in odd numbered years. All applications are processed by Miss Woody at VWCC, regardless of which site you will be considered for.
By applying early to VWCC and submitting your high school/GED records and all college course work attempted, Pam Woody (Health Careers Specialist) will be able to help you with future course selections. This would allow you to be aware of any prerequisite requirements you have not met and be provided advising on how to meet those requirements, as well as selecting courses that can be utilized to increase the cumulative GPA by the end of the Fall semester. Current enrollment in missing prerequisites is not required to apply early, but must be completed by the end of Spring 2013 to be considered for Roanoke or DCC for fall 2013. You would also be kept informed of any changes in the curriculum that might affect your future course selections prior to entering the program. Dates for taking the HOBET and interviews are very limited.
Those wishing to apply for the next Joint Venture with Lord Fairfax Community College 2014 are encouraged to submit their application and academic material early, but no later than February 15, 2014. The two letters of recommendation and evaluation forms will be accepted beginning August 2013, but no later than February 15, 2014. If you submit a non-VCCS college transcript early (prior to the end of Fall 2013) from a school where coursework is still being attempted, you must request updated transcripts at the end of Fall 2013 in order to make your application file complete.
We require all application material(s) be submitted directly to Health Professions - if you fail to do so, be aware we will not be responsible for any delays in processing your file. Complete the following and submit in one envelope to Pam Woody, VWCC-Health Technology, P.O. Box 14007, Roanoke, VA 24038.
Have all official sealed transcripts (high school and college) and a copy of GED scores (if applicable). We strongly suggest applicant's to request transcripts be sent to the applicant's mailing address, so you are fully aware of whether your request is filled and all material can be placed by you in one larger envelope for submission. Remember, do not open any envelope which contains a transcript, they are no longer "official" to us when you open.
If any school refuses to issue "official" transcripts directly to student, please request they be sent addressed directly to Pam Woody at the address above. Please do not request transcripts from VWCC or any other community college in Virginia. Transcripts must include Continuing Education courses. HS transcripts are required even if you are a college graduate. GED holders must also submit official high school transcripts if completed at least through the 9th grade. If you were home-schooled a detailed academic curriculum report showing completion by the school administrator is required (including a statement indicating if a lab component was completed for Biology and Chemistry).
